Family History

Much of the family history work that has been carried out is available in the LDS Family Search Web Site Ancestral File. But an overview and some additional information is available here.

You may click through any of the links in the family tree below to find out more about that person, or members of their extended family that may not be listed here. GEDCOM files for each family group are also available to registered visitors.

Photo Galleries

We have set up some photo galleries and will be adding more photos over the coming months. As well as a general gallery, there is also a gallery for each of the four main family lines.


We have a broad collection of documents, including letters and diary excerpts, that have been and continue to be transcribed to digital formats. We will gradually be making them available.


There are some GEDCOM files available on the site.  GEDCOM files are a popular way to share family histories. They can be opened using PAF and a number of similar software packages. PAF can be downloaded for free at
